Gibson Custom 60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar - Mojave Burst Gloss

Gibson

No specific Gibson model carries more intrigue and gravitas than the 1959 Les Paul Standard.  At first a commercial failure, it was soon adopted by the most famous guitarists in the world: Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, MikeBloomfield, and Billy Gibbons, to name a few.  The instrument was simply enchanting, from its beautiful figured maple top to its extreme sonic versatility.  All these reasons and more made the 1959 Les Paul Standard the most coveted guitar on the planet. 

Gibson Custom Shop's 60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard is not just a tribute to the priceless originals - it's a clone.  From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics and color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in intricate detail.  It represents the culmination of yearly improvements to authenticity and accuracy since Gibson Custom Shop began examining vintage Les Pauls decades ago.
